Saratoga's annual meet gets underway Friday, July 24

According to the Albany Business Review, New York's Franchise Oversight Board, which oversees the New York Racing Association, will hold a public hearing at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Saratoga Springs City Center to discuss multi-million dollar plans to upgrade Saratoga Race Course's hospitality and seating options.

The construction of a three-story hospitality building that includes luxury suites, a restaurant, and outdoor dining areas is part of $36 million in improvements planned for Saratoga and NYRA's two tracks downstate, Belmont and Aqueduct.

Other upgrades planned include improvements to the grandstand and clubhouse and a redesign of some betting windows.

NYRA ended last year with a $1.5 million operating surplus, its first in 13 years.
